Ferland (concussion) is training and will be ready to go if the season resumes this summer. According to general manager Jim Benning, "he'd be at 100 percent and be able to come back and play," Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports. Ferland was expected to miss the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign due to his concussion symptoms, but with the league going on hiatus, the winger appears set to return to the ice if the league picks back up. The Manitoba native has played in just two games since the end of October and will miss the 40-point mark for the first time since 2016-17 when he was with Calgary. If Ferland can put his injury concerns behind him, he should be capable of getting back to being a 35-40-point producer in 2020-21
Ferland is dealing with recurring concussion-like symptoms and will miss the rest of the season. Ferland recently left Friday's conditioning game with AHL Utica with concussion-like symptoms, and as evidenced by this news, the setback was serious. The 27-year-old hasn't played in the NHL since Dec. 10 and will finish the season with five points in 14 games. Ferland is a prime candidate for long-term injured reserve, which would clear a roster spot and cap space for newly acquired Tyler Toffoli. Ferland will continue to be evaluated.
Ferland (upper body) left AHL Utica's game Friday with concussion-like symptoms. The Canucks called the move precautionary. Ferland has been out since Dec. 10 with an upper-body injury. His previous injury was not called a concussion, but it has been severe enough to cost him two months already, and this latest setback suggests more missed time is on the way in the winger's long recovery.
Ferland (upper body) was sent to AHL Utica for a conditioning stint Tuesday. Ferland spent a week with AHL Utica earlier this month on a conditioning stint but wasn't yet healthy enough to suit up for a game. This should rule him out for Wednesday's game against Chicago while he looks to get back to game shape in the minors.
Ferland (upper body) was recalled from his conditioning stint and skated with a no-contact jersey during Saturday's practice, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports. Ferland hasn't played an NHL game since Dec. 10, and he didn't play a game during his conditioning stint with AHL Utica. The 27-year-old still needs a bit of time, but it's a positive sign that he's participating in practice. He'll sit out Saturday versus the Flames, but he could be back in the fold Monday versus Nashville.
